A brief description on the foundations of federalism in Nigeria today derive from the historical experiences of its peoples before the advent of colonialism, the administrative structures established during the colonial period, and the various adjustments made to the country's structure since independence in 1960. These foundations have informed the adoption of Federalism in Nigeria; and these are what we have tried to unearth over the three volumes which are now available to the public.
